Mucolytics In The Treatment Of Bronchitis

To begin, we shall understand what mucolytics. Mucolytics – it’s drugs, thinning mucus, while not increasing its volume.
All mucoactive drugs are usually divided into 3 types:
- Effect on the qualitative properties of the mucus, such as viscosity and elasticity (in fact, we are considering mucolytics).
- Accelerating the process of separation and release mucus (the so-called mukokinetiki).
- Reduces the amount of mucus (mukoregulyatory).
Which of these types of drugs a patient decides to appoint a doctor only. However, they are effective in the treatment of acute and chronic respiratory diseases.
A variety of diseases of the respiratory system of the body suggest accumulation in the lungs (or the lumen of the bronchi) viscous mucus containing bacteria and germs in large numbers. Such diseases include pneumonia, asthma, bronchitis, and of course. Long-term course of these diseases without adequate treatment can lead to blockage of the lumen of the bronchi viscous sputum and as a consequence significantly complicate breathing and can lead to various infectious complications such as pneumonia. In this case, the main short-term priority task – to activate the removal of phlegm from the bronchial tubes. With this purpose, and mucolytic agents are used.
To mucolytics are Mukaltin, Lasolvan, acetylcysteine​​, Ambroxol and others.
